We had the cheese sticks, corn dog, tator tots, grilled chicken sandwich,and junior double cheeseburger. The sandwiches were served nice and hot. Corn dog was nearly burnt, but we did not send it back. Simple fast food!!

For unabashed guilty-pleasure dining, America's Drive In™ always hits the spot. Sonic may not be healthy, but it sure is delicious!

The cheeseburgers are very good and made to order. The cheese sticks are a real treat! The staff are friendly on a consistent basis.

Always good food, always a great price. The best thing about Sonic is that you order in your own time, without an employee waiting while you try to decide what you want. Half price drinks and shakes after 8, good breakfast lunch and dinner!

In my opinion sonic has the best burgers compared to other fast food places also the burgers are larger and it seems like you get more for the same price as other fast food chains. I have Always had pleasant service from this sonic.

We routinely visit Sonic, especially after 8pm because my husband loves their half-priced milk shakes. I also enjoy the happy hour 2-4pm when drinks and slushes are half-priced! Love the cherry or strawberry limeades! Recommend breakfast burritos anytime of the day, cheeseburgers, tots, cheese sticks...More

Despite this place always being run by kids, they have fast, professional service and have never gotten an order wrong in my experience (I've been there many, many times). Good food, cheap prices, and quick service. How is that not 5-stars?

Went here for lunch. The service is very quick and the food is good. I think the Sonic Burgers are some of the best and you can not go wrong with the tots and a cherry limeade.
